My HT system has Vandy 3A Signatures with a VCC-1 Signature center channel, but for various reasons (mostly wall space problems) I chose not to use the Vandy surround speakers. After trying several types of surround speakers -- different brands, both dipole vs. direct-radiating -- I bought a used pair of M&K SS-150 THX tripole surrounds for about $500. I think they are an excellent match, both tonally and in their dispersion pattern, with the Vandy speakers. M&K has several models that are cheaper than the SS-150's, but if you can find the SS-150's for sale on Audiogon (there was a pair listed last week), and your budget is sufficient, I recommend these speakers as a good alternative to the Vandy VSM-1's.
